 Located on the Sapphire Lake, Tephis is a center of trade and entertainment. Tephis started as a meeting ground, a place for the nomadic tribes of the desert to join together for trading and religious festivals. Over time, some members of the tribes began to stay after the meetings were over, forming a small village. As the years passed Tephis grew, attracting interest from outside the desert. Traders came first, eager to strike it rich buying and selling good with the tribes. Tourists followed soon after drawn by the promise of exotic sights and goods. The city grew rapidly with this influx, and as of now has completely dominated the western shore of the Sapphire Lake. Tephis can be roughly split up into five districts: Entertainment,​ Religious, Trade, Administrative,​ and the Slums. The city is tended to by the Tephian Counsel. Located on the Sapphire Lake, Tephis is a center of trade and entertainment.

-====The Entertainment District====+===The Entertainment District===
  
 By far the largest section of Tephis, the entertainment district is one of the main draws of the city to outsiders. In it, one can find almost every form of pleasure, be it food, drink, drugs, music, brothels, gambling, and much more. One location of note is the Gladiatorial Arena, a popular attraction put on by the Fennus Trade Company. By far the largest section of Tephis, the entertainment district is one of the main draws of the city to outsiders.

-====The Religious District====+===The Religious District===
  
 The smallest of the districts, this section of the city is dedicated to housing the temples and clergy of the gods. All of the gods are represented in an amount equal to that found elsewhere on Ageron, with the exceptions of Ra and Neptune. Ra enjoys a larger than usual following in Tephis due to large amount of sunlight the city receives, while Neptune’s following is smaller due to the distance from the ocean and overall scarcity of water in the desert. The desert tribes keep their temples, as they follow their own animistic religion. The smallest of the districts, this section of the city is dedicated to housing the temples and clergy of the gods.

-====The Trade District====+===The Trade District===
  
 The second largest district of the city, the trade district is a place where fortunes are bought and sold on a daily basis. Spices, clothing, furniture, and art can all be found here, the more exotic the better. Auction halls and stores line the streets, letting one buy almost anything for the right price. The second largest district of the city, the trade district is a place where fortunes are bought and sold on a daily basis.

-====The Administrative District====+===The Administrative District===
  
 This district serves as the mind of Tephis. It is here where the wellbeing of the city is decided, as laws are passed and decrees are made. The Tephian Council meets here. Also located in this district are the courts and prisons of the city. This district serves as the mind of Tephis.

-====The Slums====+===The Slums===
  
 Despite the relative prosperity of Tephis, not all in it prosper equally. The slums house the poor and destitute of the city. It is a hostile place for outsiders, who at best might end up with a missing coin purse. Still, for those willing or foolhardy enough to brave the dangers, the slums can be a place of many illicit opportunities. Organized crime and a thriving black market can provide one with many interesting ventures, if they’re willing to take the risk. Despite the relative prosperity of Tephis, not all in it prosper equally.
